Magic Moments. Loving Selfies

On a recent trip to Seahouses, I took the opportunity to grab these 2 selfies of Dee and myself. It was a wonderful day out, just me and her and a chance to chill out. I’ll post other pics in a normal post about out journey up the coastal route in Northumberland.

Magic Moments . A brilliant weekend

For the Bank Holiday weekend, D, G and myself went to stay at a converted old railway station. Lots of alcohol was drunk in the hot tub.


Hanging around in Costa

This is the post that kept failing on the WordPress mobile app yesterday. After resigning to our Daughters request to go to the dog shelter to have a look at the dogs there, we have come to Costa for a cooler while D goes to see her Nana in hospital.

A nice day

09 /02 / 2013

Saturday is here. One of the days I have been looking forward to. The reason being, simply, because D is off work ( although a bit hungover ). She doesn’t know it, and will more than likely tell me off for saying this on here rather than to her face, but just the fact of her being close by, is an enormous help and relief to me. She doesn’t have to do anything to help me, just being there is a big help in itself. I know that if I did need help, or even just someone to talk to or a shoulder to cry on, she will always be there. She even said to wake her, if I ever needed to talk, even if it silly o’clock in the morning. I could not do that to her, but its a nice gesture.
Today, we went to Ikea to get my Dad a new lamp for his living room. He has been complaining for the last month that the main lamp in his living room is rubbish as it has an energy saving bulb in it. I will get John to change that tomorrow hopefully as the ceilings are very hight and I don’t want my Dad trying to go up step ladders and having a fall. My Dad has for ages now used the main room light for everything. He has not had a smaller lamp for years. Hopefully he will like this one as it is bright and has a second flexible lamp on the side he can bend to point down when he is reading his papers. He needs a bright lamp as his eyesight is not what it was.
We also bought a couple of new things for the house. Nothing major. Just a new glass lid for our wok and a new loo brush. Ours fell to bits. Oh, I nearly forgot. We bought a lovely new bath mat to go beside the bath. The cats will love it as they always sleep on the mat due to the underfloor heating. Its very soft and fluffy when you stand on it. Much nicer than the old, one which was well past its best.
After tea, I had a nice soothing bath, as I have had pains in my back, shoulder, neck and down my right arm today. You cannot beat a nice hot bath when your not in a rush. Its lovely just to lie there and soak. Mind you, it’s a bit hard to relax when you have a cat that balances on the edge of the bath, nearly to the point of toppling in, just to drink your bath water. You just know, if he did fall in, there would be claws flying in a mad panic. Not a nice thought.

Tonight, I has a chat with my good friend Carl. It was nice to catch up with him. It seems a while since we last had a good chat. He was telling me he is very excited about his new blog and website. I don’t have details for the website yet, but the blog can be found at https://lifeofcarl.wordpress.com. Its a really good, personal blog, where he tells us about his day to day life and the ups and downs. Well worth a visit. Please subscribe or follow him if you can. Carl is a very nice guy. Some would say, salt of the earth. Carl does not have a bad bone in his body, and will do anything to help if he can. Please pop by and say hi to him. He is relatively new to blogging, like myself, so any support would be gratefully received.

Well I’m off to bed now as I need my beauty sleep. Its hard work being this good looking ( Not! )

Take care everyone

Light at the end of the tunnel

Today, G and myself, got the train to my Dad’s for a change, instead of driving there. A bit more relaxing. When we got there, we took dad for our normal coffee at Costa’s, to get my Dad out of the house for an hour or so, and get a fresh air on the walk to Costa’s. I enjoy our little coffee stops. It gives us a chance to have a good natter about whats been happening and my Dad a chance to get into ‘story mode’, which he seems to enjoy. It takes his mind of everything else, which at the moment, I think he needs.

Back at the house we went through a load more drawers and dug out yet more paperwork and sorted it out. G volunteered for the job of shredding all the unwanted stuff, and stuff with personal details on. We went at this for must be nearly 2 hours. By the time we gave up, the large bin bag we were using, was three quarters full of shredded paper. The shredder, which a couple of days ago, was partly sat in water, worked perfectly and did not cut out once. What a time saver it turned out to be compared to ripping stuff up by hand or using my Dad’s manual shredder. By the time we finished, we had gotten through loads of paperwork, There is still loads to do, but, with regards to personal stuff needed for the solicitors, I think we have found most of it. The rest should all be stuff that needs sorting and shredding. A big pile, today, got reduced to just a small pile of letters etc. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting closer.

All that was left to do after that, for today, was head off home on the train and go to the local Tesco and buy loads of shopping. I’m going to put my feet up tonight, as sitting in a rather hard dining room chair for all that time this afternoon, has played havoc with my back and neck.
